This is an incomplete, chronological list of films produced in the Khmer language. Most films are related to the Cinema of Cambodia, but it may include films which have been partly produced in other countries but still retain Cambodian links.

For an alphabetical listing, see Category:Cambodian films. Not all Khmer films are listed and many of the films produced between 1965 and 1975 were destroyed during the Khmer Rouge years.
